. the president is very singular about not having somebody stand on stage with him. i bet you bill clinton will be standing on stage with him during the entire time when barack obama speaks because clinton is considered a real concrete asset that can change undecided votes. >> speaking of changing let's go back to mitt romney now. he seems to be moving more toward the middle in these closing days, not a surprise to the critics who called him a flip-flopper from the beginning. what do you think this will mean for those republicans who hoped he'd stay more conservative? >> let me quote the virginia governor bob mcdonnell who is a major supporter of mitt romney who said that his own elections are won in the middle. you remember his own press person, romney during the primaries said we're going to do etch a sketch, that is, go to the right to get the nomination and then have to go to the have to get independents and moderates to win -- to the right to get independents and moderates to win the election. those who are for him will say he's pragmatic and those who oppose him will say once again y
and new york's cuomo. >> greg: we can't forget that bill clinton today said, what did he say? speaking of storms, if you don't vote for if you vote for romney that's a bigger storm. bigger disaster than sandy. i would say that bill clinton is a threat to anyone named sandy. >> kimberly: okay, than say tute political note we move on. new reports that contradict the administration story about the libya terror attack. we have details about what the lawmakers were told in a briefing, just two days after the attack. we are closely watching hurricane sandy. we have the latest as thecoast e megastorm. stay with us. ♪ ♪ starting to turn around because of business people like you. and regions is here to help. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. ♪ ♪ >> dana: welcome back to "the five." fox's catherine herridge reporting today on september 13, two days after the libya attack, lawmakers on capitol hill were told during a briefing with t
is a complete head shake. i am not convinced how tough it is for mitt romney. you notice that bill clinton will be in pennsylvania on monday. aside from president obama the former president is the best surrogate his campaign has. bill clinton is going to be in pennsylvania on monday, the fact that obama campaign has spent more money on television in pennsylvania suggest there is some concern that the race has pulled closer than the obama folks thought it it could would be. >> heather: and storm sandy and jobs report. last one that came out on friday? >> these are both hard questions. simply because we've hevnhev an event like this speaking of sandy so close to a national election. how voters respond to the negativity and clamor of the campaign which as come back to full swing as to what has happened in new jersey, new york and connecticut, it's such an open question. it will be interesting to see how it plays out in terms of whether voters take that into account and think about that on tuesday. >> heather: we appreciate your insight. >> gregg: becoming to the bottom of the terror attack in
eight days there. he's going to be there with bill clinton on monday and i expect him to be back there relatively soon after that. i think he's going to basically be bunking there all week. >> yeah, good point. what about you, steve? the ohio poll showing the president is winning over about six in ten early voters. but he's losing the election day voters, 61% to 44% for mitt romney. so the romney campaign says the president's peaking too soon. do you have a read on the ground there, what's going on? >> well, i mean, the ground game is fascinating there. the president has about three times as many field offices in ohio as mitt romney does. so they're very confident they have enough people to knock on doors, make phone calls and get out the vote on election day. however, late-breaking votes tend not to vote for the incumbent. you know, we know that those voters know who the incumbent is. they haven't gone to him, they haven't voted early for him, so it could end up being a wash on election day and could be a late night. >> you got that right. how about the obama campaign calculatio
president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to run the table everywhere else. this is a good piece of news for the president out of ohio today. vir
. his name was bill clinton. when he was first elected, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of
in china. >> to quote bill clinton, that takes brass. but that ad got four pinocchios from washington post, got pats on fire from politico. so obviously he stopped, right? wrong. he's now buying ohio ads in the ohio city home of the jeep plant. >> now come words that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in toledo and throughout ohio? the same hard working men and went who were told obama's auto bailout would help them? >> today chrysler's ceo sent a letter to employees saying, i feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position. jeep productions will not be moved from the united states to chi china. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. inaccurate is a kind way of putting it. when corrected time and time again, governor romney has walked away from the truth. he hasn't fibbed, he hasn't mud idea the facts. he lied. and it's a lie he is selling to the people of ohio. it's desperate behavior from a desperate candidate. joining me now is former ohio governor ted strickland, national co-chairman for the obam
and what bill clinton represents. >> paul: i think i know who wins that, the progressive win that contest. steve, what do you think about what happens if the republicans lose only a handful of seats in the house and president obama is reelected. does that mean the republicans feel chasen and have to do what president obama wants? >> no, it's the republican firewall and speaker boehner and barack obama doing battle again for four more years. >> paul: okay, when we come back, tuesday's vote won't just decide the presidency and control of congress. there are 176 initiatives on the ballot in 38 states. and they could affect everything from where your kids go to school to how much you pay in taxes. we'll profile some of the big ones next. it's the little things in life that make me smile. spending the day with my niece. i don't use super poligrip for hold because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well-fitting dentures let in food particles. super poligrip is zinc free. with just a few dabs, it's clinicall
their bill clinton. but bush spent 1999 developing a real program. later called it big government conservatism. but he had a real plan there to create a greater federal role in education. he had a real plan there for a federal role on prescription drugs. they developed a vision. the republican vision -- >> hence the immigration bill. >> exactly. this is what he ran on in 2000. so there was some real substance there. what mitt romney is doing right here, he was far to the right in the primary. gave the conservative base everything they wanted. in the republican platform. this is one of the most conservative republican platforms we have seen. he did nothing at the convention from a policy standpoint to move away from that. he waited until october 3rd to start in a debate to articulate moderate-sounding outcomes. not policy, but outcomes. things that sound pleasing to moderates that are not backed up. but he's not changed his position on anything that i can really see. i'm struggling to think of a precedent. the idea of you can't trust this guy. the idea you don't want a weather vane
was a little not leave. i thought they would feel the need to do with bill clinton tobias, always answer the -- advised which was always answer the questions from voters -- advised, always answer the question from voters. >> you got the sense that they felt there was so much at stake that they could not afford to not carry out the mission, and in the president's case, to be there, ann romney's case, to continue to be presidential -- and in romney's case, to continue to be presidential. and to have smart answers to questions. >> i like the town hall format. i like the idea of -- of it. i guess the problem is there were many times -- the second question was about gas prices. the first question was neutral, i'm worried i'm not calling to have a job. the second question went straight at the president and said your energy secretary says it is not his job to keep energy prices down, do you think it is his job, and the next thing i know we were arguing about drilling in public lands. i went back and said the question was do you think it is the job of the government, and then they went off on th
of ohio. they're both staying out of sta san sandy's way today. he spent bill clinton and joe biden there instead. romney has canceled tomorrow's events in ohio, but he hit avon lake earlier today. >> people of the entire nation are counting on ohio, because my guess is that if ohio votes me in as president, i'll be the next president of the united states. >> since the conventions romney has held 27 events in ohio over 12 days. i sent ryan there for 19 events and the president has been there seven times for 10 events. no republican has ever won the white house without ohio, no democrat has done it since jfk. ohio is an important state. when we talk about the state we haven't discussed in this table is the importance of a ground game. the having field offices throughout a state and the things that they can do getting people to the polls and getting information about the candidates. obama's lead in the ground game is massive. obama has 800 field offices throughout the nation, romney only has 300. in ohio the difference is massive, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see
to be the president of the united states. >> gretchen: thank you very much. >> brian: at least you are bill clinton and he gets big crowds. it is delegate campaigning. >> steve: because the eyes of the nation are on the eye the storm. >> gretchen: eyes are on how the candidates handle it. the president in the libya situation he went to campaign and got blow back for that. ship with 17 people on board in distress as hurricane sandy moves up the east coast. hmy near hatters it is taking on water. the coast guard said it is monitoring thuation. hurricane sandy silencing the opening bell. it is the first weather related closure in twen years and hear that the markets may be closed tomorrow. big apple bracing for the big hurricane. statu of liberty reopened to the public. but super storm sandy shutting it down. stairs were replace exclude there is wheelchairac sess to the day. it is her 126th birthday. >> standing strong and reminding us that we as a nation of immigrants are strong and millions of people who pass by the statu on the way to the better world strengthened us in a pursuit of the a more perf

to make that judgement. bill clinton at the democratic convention spoke about how he didn't think any president, republican or democrat, could have pulled the country out of that deep economic recession in one term. president obama, you know, even in terms of the numbers that came out this morning, strong jobs numbers said the recovery should be faster and he will have to do more in terms of producing those jobs. martha: you know, mary katherine, we're looking at the scenes of both of them out there campaigning in the final days. even when the number came out this morning i can't help but think most of this is individual feeling. doesn't really matter what the headline number is out there. do you feel like things are headed in the right direction. do you feel comfortable with the next four years with either staying with this president or do you want to give somebody else a shot. that is what it will come down to, right? >> yeah, i think that is the bottom line that's why often independents break toward the challenger at the end of the race because they're undecided because they're not
carter twice, walter mondale, michael dukakis, bill clinton, al gore, and john carry, and barack obama. caller: when this editorial board said down, we did not look at who has an r or d behind his name. the whole conversation focal point was the economy. what is best for the next four years. partisanship was set aside to examine the issues that i once care the most about, an issue that is at a high level on the national level. it has to be in a bipartisan way. this thread state, blue state gridlock that we find ourselves and as a nation is not just being saw in washington, it is being saw all over the country. i think there is a growing demand from voters -- i think this election will probably prove it -- they want washington to work. the one there to be leadership. there has to be an effort from somebody to reach across the aisle and make something happen with another party. when we sat down and really thought about where we wanted to go with this, we looked at the list. host: let me bring up one other point. we are focusing on the demo in registered in part because of mitt romney spe
tuesday? let's talk to former advisor to president bill clinton, co-author of the book that's coming out, u.n. global governance and the loss of freedom, dick morris who joins us today from detroit. good morning to you. >> i don't know if the black helicopters will get through the storm. >> steve: they were probably grounded for a day or two, but they could be back later today. as we look toward -- >> you guys hear that the u.n. is sending inspectors to monitor our elections in the u.s.? >> steve: yeah. >> we talked about it in the book. >> steve: down in texas, they said don't bother. >> they're not letting them in. >> steve: no. let's talk about the impact of sandy on next tuesday's voting. there are a number of states that could potentially be still impacted by the lingering effects. i was talking to my sister yesterday who lives in ohio. half of her roof got blown away with the storm as it moved through there and ohio is important. >> yeah. i think that today the storm will have some positive impact for obama because he's going to be moving through the state with governor christie, a
today stumping for reelection. is expected to be joined by former president bill clinton and you can watch that light at 3:30 p.m. eastern also on c-span c-span. >> you consider that a while ago no one whatever agreed to carry around a tracking device, right? but now we all carry around cell phones. no one would ever have posted, let anyone read her e-mail but right now a lot of us our gmail is stored on a server at google. it's interesting that we as a society have given our information out. >> we were looking into cyber incident security, type of war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of people and machines and networks as a new domain of war. and yet we realized that maybe one in 1000 people really understood what cyberspace was and the degree and depth of the vulnerabilities. and so what we're trying to do in zero days series is to take pieces of it and explain the fundamental and the platonic idea is that everybody from my mom and dad to congress and people around the country can understand and so
.w. bush, the first bush presidency was on the line, bill clinton was battling him, 1992. bush had a recession, jobs were not being created, but the last jobs number there was a downtick in unemployment, a good positive jobs number that came out with four days to go before the election, and no one knew about it. no one paid any attention to it. obviously one side spun it as a positive, one side spun it as a negative but people had already made their mind up. what's baked into the election the three people that are still undecided in the united states of america about this election are not waiting for the jobs number to come out this morning at 8:30 to make up their final decision. i think most everyone understands right now that the economy is not growing as fast as it could, we're not creating the jobs that we could and almost no number that comes out this morning is going to benefit the election at this point in time. >> jared, you agree with that? i'll also throw into the mix we've had a number of endorsements for different candidates over the past day or two and i think about b
mainly because of the first republican congress in 40 years, and i'll give bill clinton credit, too, because he swung around and did it. >> moderator: can i suggest we forgo rebuttal on this and go to the next -- howell: well, i'd just like to say something really quick. my opponent voted for the largest bailout in the history of our country. my opponent voted for the doughnut hole on medicare that was never paid for. my opponent voted for two unfunded wars. now, ladies and gentlemen, when he says the democrats go back there and they're just going to vote for all these programs, look, i'm just telling the facts on this. i believe that we have to have fiscal responsibility. >> moderator: senator hatch? hatch: well, nobody believes more in fiscal responsibility than i do. but i also believe that when some group of people come in and attack our country and kill 3,000 people, you don't sit back and say, oh, we can't spend money on that. and i don't care what it costs to get out there and let 'em know we're not going to let 'em take over our country and do these things to us! anybody who
